I am having 4 celebrations this month for my 40th Birthday and the 1st one was about 5 of my friends. We enjoyed the home which afforded us plenty of space, quiet time, and fun. I would like to come back in the spring and go fishing. The cabin exceeded my expectations, it had everything we needed except food. I enjoyed sitting on the patios enjoying the views as well as enjoying the hot tub at night viewing the stars, which was the perfect temperature as well! The people at GSCR were quick to respond to me and answered any questions that I had.

Beautiful, authentic real wood cabin. Beautiful view. Very comfortable. The cabin had everything we needed for our stay. We enjoyed the hot tub, pool table and chiminea. We enjoyed our times sitting on the decks just enjoying the views. The kitchen came equipped with everything we needed. The view was absolutely beautiful. It was so enjoyable to just sit on the deck(s), look at the view, listen to the birds and unwind.

The property was a pleasant surprise & an excellent value. We had an amazing time in the area, and found plenty to keep our family busy and entertained. The pictures on the website were good, and there were plenty of them. BUT, they did not do justice to how great the house was for us. It far exceeded our expectations in terms of upkeep, size, location, etc. We went rafting on the Tuckasegee, played golf at Sequoya National, played disc golf in Asheville, went zip-lining, went on a couple hikes in the National Park, and generally enjoyed touring the area.

I rented this property for myself and a group of friends. We were all so impressed! There was plenty of room for everyone to have their own space, the cabin was beautiful, and it was close to lots of great hiking and waterfalls. The view from the porch was incredible and you were truly in the mountains just walking out the front door. We loved the hot tub and the large porches.

My friends and I loved this cabin! Everything was gorgeous and well kept. We had everything we needed to make several meals and there were plenty of things to do. We all wished we had more time than just a weekend. The driveway up to the cabin is intimidating but we got all 4 of our cars up fine even without 4 wheel drive. The view from the porch and hot tub is gorgeous and makes you feel so secluded. Great smoky national park was about a 30 min drive and easily accessible for hikes and waterfalls. Would definitely recommend and rent this cabin again!
